Aquarian Dream - You're A Star

  • Aquarian Dream

    You're A Star 12" (1978)

    Elektra

A disco funk/soul classic that was mentioned in pretty much every "recommend me some disco" thread.  Rightfully so, "You're a Star" mixes the crystal funk guitar of Chic with warm synth grooves a la Roy Ayers and pumps it up into dance floor cocaine territory.  Elektra never released this as a 12" in the US just as 45.  It did enjoy significant success in the UK were it was released as a 12".  It features the voice of Sylvia Striplin who later left the band for Roy Ayers' Uno Melodic label where she released the classic "Give Me Your Love” among others.  There’s also a KILLER sax solo by my boy Gary Bartz.  I can't comment who made the orgasm noises.
